Barcelona vs Inter Netted twice against Inter
Luis Suarez has issued a warning to the rest of Europe after his double saw Barcelona come back from a goal down to beat Inter 2-1 in the Champions League.
The Uruguayan striker proved why he is one of the continent’s top marksmen with a sensational volley to equalise before sealing the victory in the 84th minute.
“It’s a very valuable victory against a direct rival,” Suarez said afterwards.
“We reacted, in some ways, to correct the errors of the first half. We knew that if we kept playing that way then we could lose.
“We were patient, and this is important because we created chances.”
Suarez credited Ernesto Valverde with Barcelona‘s stronger second half performance and the alterations the coach made at half-time.
“He told us to be more organised when pressing,” Suarez said about his boss’s half-time team talk.
“That’s why we have a coach, to correct these mistakes.
“It’s also a compliment to the opponent because they have very quick players and they took advantage of the space we left.”
Suarez hasn’t started the season in rich goalscoring form, but he always backs himself to lead the line.
“Being the striker, you always try to help the team with goals and assists,” he added.
“I characterise myself on hard work and never giving up the fight.”
Many across Europe see Barcelona as the favourites to win the Champions League this season.
“We’re at the best club in the world and everything is scrutinised,” Suarez stated.
“Being strong and focused, knowing that we’re the team to beat, is the mentality that we must have in the Champions League [this season].”
